MSc ENVIRONMENT AND DEVELOPMENT

Full Time: 12 months | Part Time: 24 months
Start date: September 2020
Examine the challenges of promoting healthy environments in the developing world on our MSc Environment and Development course.
The world faces serious and rapidly evolving environmental challenges on a number of fronts and at many levels. Simultaneously, the development of an economically fairer and socio-politically more just world remain paramount. This programme provides analytically rigorous, stimulating and balanced perspectives of the inter-relations between environment and development at the global, regional, national and local levels.
Students learn to critically examine how these challenges have been interpreted and are being addressed by academics, international agencies, government-level policy-makers, nongovernment development actors and of course, 'ordinary' people around the world.
This master's programme:
examines the policy challenges in promoting healthy environments in the developing world.
provides an analytically rigorous but broadly-based understanding of the inter-relations between environment and development at global, national and local levels.
is designed for students interested in pursuing careers in environmental policy and planning in international government and non-governmental organisations, academia and journalism.
Class sizes vary by subject and module, but emphasis is always placed on good contact time with lecturers. Learning occurs across a variety of lectures, seminars, tutorials and field trips.
